With areas of cherry blossoms, green banks, and bridges acting as meeting places for young lovers, the river provides a welcome and varied place to evade the crowds and listen to the flowing water. See how the river interacts with the city in the more developed areas, with its waters becoming central to a number of shrines and pleasant gardens.

  • Very beautiful area, old machiya restaurants line the side, easily accessible. Great spot for pictures. Very nice place for strolling and quiet contemplation!  more »
  • To walk along the river every time I go to Kyoto. Fall behind Mt. Bunao Observation House watching birds in their winter, spring summer, Cherry is seeking a bright green and cool. There is this river from facial expressions to Kyoto would have been born. River walk when sunny stepping stones, so take a look at.
